The article goes onto say Winfield has spent a lot of time in the slot in recent seasons, something he’d likely do if he wound up with the Seahawks. With Marcus Trufant more than likely NOT coming back to Seattle in 2013 there is an opening for some competition here. Other possible candidates would of course be Jeremy Lane, and Walter Thurmond.
This just makes this Seahawks fan start licking his chops. If the Seahawks do land Winfield, it will make one of the league’s best secondaries even deeper. We'll see what happens and keep you posted.
Winfield is 5-9 180lbs, and was drafted 23rd overall in 1999 by the Bills. Last season in Minnesota Winfield played all 16 games and racked up 71 solo tackles, 29 assists, a half sack, 3 INT's, and 12 PD's.
